    We normally do not have these items fresh. When we do could I grate/zest them and store in the fridge or freezer? If so , How long will they store?

    I actually dehydrate the zest and freeze the rest of the fruit. The peel changes texture if you freeze the whole fruit, which is why you should zest it first.

    The zest can be frozen for up to 6 months. So zest away!! thanks; Virginia
